Bariatric Surgery

Minimally invasive bariatric surgery, or weight loss surgery, can be an extremely effective tool in the treatment of obesity and its associated medical conditions including:

  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Osteoarthritis

Our Procedures

  • Laparoscopic gastric bypass
  • Sleeve gastrectomy
  • Gastric banding

Surgery itself is only one step to the ultimate goal.  The best outcome is to achieve a lasting healthy lifestyle through traditional techniques of diet and exercise. This is why we have created a team including nutritionists, psychologists, primary care physicians and our staff. Together, the team guides patients through the process before and after surgery, providing the knowledge and support needed for a lifetime of success.

Weight loss surgery is a life changing commitment and finding what technique is best for you is important. If you are interested in bariatric surgery, call us and attend our monthly support group to learn more.
